REV. TERENCE McCABE, priest in charge of St. Joseph's Catholic Church at Coraopolis, Allegheny Co., Pa., was born Dec. 1, 1867, in County Cavan, Ireland, son of John and Bridget (Smith) McCabe.

Father McCabe secured his classical and ecclesiastical education in Ireland, and came to the United States in November, 1898. Immediately upon his arrival here he proceeded to Pittsburgh, Pa., to become assistant priest at the Mount Washington Catholic Church. Later he was sent as assistant priest to St. John's Church, in Altoona, Pa., and held the same office at St. John's Church (South Side), Pittsburgh; St. Patrick's Church, Newry, Pa.; St. Patrick's Church, Pittsburgh; and St. Alphonsus Church, Murrinsville, in Butler county, Pa. In June, 1906, he became priest in charge of St. Mary's Church at Freeport, where he remained five and one-half years. He organized the Catholic parochial school in Freeport, and had placed it and the church in a flourishing condition. In December, 1911, Father McCabe was transferred from Freeport, Pa., to Coraopolis, Pa., and has charge of the Catholic Church in that borough at present.
